About meI am married with no children (and no plans for any!). I was a history and political science major in college, but I read mostly fiction - anything from politcal thrillers to historical fiction to "chick" lit to acknowledged classics. My non-fiction reading tends toward the traumatic childhood memoir, history, and geopolitical and cultural studies.

My 2013 75 Books Challenge thread is HERE.

About my libraryMost of the books included in my catalogue are ones I own or have read on loan from others or the library since starting on Library Thing. Those in the "Read but Unowned" collection are ones I have read but no longer have in my possession. I am only entering reviews for books I've read since joining LT. As for my rating system:

1 star = awful
2 stars = disappointing
3 stars = solid & reasonably enjoyable
4 stars = very good
5 stars = excellent

However, all this is, of course, very subjective, and some of the ratings are based on my memories of the book rather than a recent reading of it. And my "favorites" (4 and 5 star books) range from 19th century literature to cheesy contemporary romance - if it served me well in some way(opened a whole new world to me, offered me escape, or comforted me during heartbreak for instance), it gets a high rating.
